This is the enchanting prelude to the Lord of the Rings trilogy. Whisked away from his comfortable, unambitious life in his hobbit-hole by Gandalf the wizard and a company of dwarves, Bilbo Baggins finds himself caught up in a plot to raid the treasure hoard of Smaug the Magnificent, a large and very dangerous dragon.

Although The Hobbit stands alone as a story, Fellowship of the Ring, the first book of the Lord of the Rings, sequels.
